CVS Pharmacy, 300 Knox Abbott Drive (Parkland Plaza): 17 May 2009   13 comments

Posted at 10:58 pm in closing

I wrote about this storefront before as Parkland Pharmacy. CVS was the successor to Parkland and made what was a rather interesting and quirky pharmacy into yet another chain drugstore.

I'm not a big fan of CVS in general -- for some reason they never seem quite as nice as Rite-Aid or my preferred store, Walgreen's. They do have a nice "no scent at all" liquid laundry detergent though, and this store was fine for what it was.

They have left Parkland Plaza for the new corner lot across the street opened up by the demolition of the Cinderella HoJo. When I took these pictures, there was no indication of what, if anything, would come to occupy this spot. Parkland Plaza is already hurting; they certainly don't need a longterm vacancy here.

UPDATE 24 June 2009: The move is complete, and the CVS is now open at the old HoJo site:

UPDATE 29 Oct 2010 -- To date nothing has moved into the CVS spot at Parkland Plaza:

UPDATE 4 July 2022: Update tags, add map icon.

  1. For some reason CVS always smells like cough syrup, a scent guaranteed to bring me nightmares of my mother's obsession for Robitussin. That's why I go to Walgreens.

  2. One of my cats was a stray rescued from right outside this CVS.

  3. Did the cat smell like Robitussin?

  4. Headsup --The CVS on Taylor St is now closed -- It was the Taylor St Pharmacy back in the day. It was the first 24 hr drug store and the first ticket agency for the Carolina Coliseum

  5. Several weeks ago, tonkatoy noted that the Hi-Lites near this would be closing and it's now offically done for. A little further up, Dollar General is closed as well it appears.

  6. Wow! Dollar General? I did not expect *that*!

  7. Me either. I saw people going in and out of there Thursday.

  8. Holy carp! Andrew was right! not only is it closed, it looks like the place never existed!

  9. Looks like Jewelry Warehouse is moving here from their location on Platt Springs Road.

    Good plan, IMO.

  10. What tonkatoy is hinting at looks similar to what they did with their former St. Andrews Crossing (817 St. Andrews Road) location back in 2010 when they moved to Columbiana Station on Bower Parkway...

  11. Fish Wrap says they are going in beside Burkes. I'd think the CVS would be better from the standpoint of visibility.

  12. tonktoy, I don't know what Fish Wrap you reference but I reread a talking shop article I keep an eye out for on Fridays and it sounds like they're taking over the former Dollar General space (I wish I had a site plan of Parkland Plaza though to understand the details in their entirety)

  13. Fish Wrap = The State paper.

    Back in the day, thye wrapped fish in old newsprint. If a paper sucked so bad, it was only fit to wrpa fish, it became known as Fish Wrap.
